Angelina Jolie JolieSalt200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Angelina Jolie confirms she will replace Tom Cruise in the spy thriller "Edwin A. Salt."

Jolie was brief when she talked about the project in an interview with BBC Radio, Monday.

"I'm working on a film called Salt. And it's with ["Bone Collector" director] Phillip Noyce. And that's it."

Earlier this summer, reports surfaced that writers were re-working the "Salt" script to make the lead character into a female after Cruise dropped out of the project.

Jolie says she'll head back to work in February, but after that she says she doesn't plan on working for another year.

"I like being home a lot," the mother of six said. "First and foremost, I have a lot of children, and I need to make sure they're growing right and they've got us there for them."
